I LOVE learning! My education, training and best mentors have been found in the pages of books. There are so many amazing must-read books out there and I’d love to start sharing some of my favorites with you, one month at a time. So what do you say? Do you want to join me? Each month, I’ll unveil our Girl Boss Book of the Month, (you can see last month’s book here) you can then go pick yours up at the library, through Audible or Amazon and get your inspire on!
FROM AMAZON: “In his powerful new book, bestselling author and world-renowned executive coach Marshall Goldsmith examines the environmental and psychological triggers that can derail us at work and in life.
Do you ever find that you are not the patient, compassionate problem solver you believe yourself to be? Are you surprised at how irritated or flustered the normally unflappable you becomes in the presence of a specific colleague at work? Have you ever felt your temper accelerate from zero to sixty when another driver cuts you off in traffic?
As Marshall Goldsmith points out, our reactions don’t occur in a vacuum. They are usually the result of unappreciated triggers in our environment—the people and situations that lure us into behaving in a manner diametrically opposed to the colleague, partner, parent, or friend we imagine ourselves to be. These triggers are constant and relentless and omnipresent. The smell of bacon wafts up from the kitchen, and we forget our doctor’s advice on lowering our cholesterol. Our phone chirps, and we glance instinctively at the glaring screen instead of looking into the eyes of the person we are with. So often the environment seems to be outside our control. Even if that is true, as Goldsmith points out, we have a choice in how we respond.”
Sound familiar? Let’s get this started!
About the Girl Boss Book of the Month: I have read so many amazing books that have truly inspired me, and I want to share them with YOU! Here’s how it works. At the end of every month, I will post the book that I will be reading for the next month. At the end of the month, I will post on Facebook my thoughts on the book. I hope you will post your thoughts and comments as well. My goal is to have this be an awesome opportunity to build connections, grow as thoughtful creatives and get inspired to dream and do bigger and better things.
